Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - July 24, 1917, Lethbridge, Alberta PAGE SIX THE LRTHDR1DGE 1>A!LT HERALD TUESDAY, JULY 21, 1017 WANTE LEGAL MAN AS HEAD OF THE JL>ocal Member Asks Why Montreal Lawyer Given Job Instead of Sanford Evans DAYLIGHT SAVING BILL TO BE DROPPED Ottawa. Ont., July 23.-During consideration of supply of the department of trmlc ami commerce there was a long discussion on the question of the. regulation 'of the price of wheat and flour. Incidentally Sir George Poster stated that there was no official confirmation of the report that the board of grain supervisors had definitely fixed the price of this year's wheat crop at ?_.I0 per bushel. He intimated that a price could not be fixed until the t'nited States consress passes co-operative legislation. Ho expected that this would )je done �within a fortnight. Hon. Jlr. Oliver having contended that the government exercised responsibility for tho fictions of the board of grain super-Visors, Sir George Foster said that it ."would do so. \V. A. Buchanan, of Lcthbridgo, Vranted to know why Leslie Uoyd, of Montreal, was made chairman of the western grain commission. Dr. t^laglll the former chairman, was the ttreatest authority in the west on grain matters and had the confidence of the fanners, grain men and elevator men. His own suggestion of a man lor the poeitiou would have been San-lord Evans, who was eminently fitted lor the work. Sir George Foster, in reply, said it was thought wise to have the new chairman a legal man. Points were continually arising of a legal nature. Mr. Boyd was tactful, ^\-ell versed on grain questions, as far tis tho Montreal end was concerned, mid a student. He would be much surprised if Mr. Boyd was not a success, and if he did not In time win the confidence of the people of the Vest. L. A. Lapointe of Montreal said that it the government had to choose one of their political faith they could Jtot have done better than choose Mr. Boyd. He had sat with him in Montreal city council for years and had been much impressed with his ability and his fairness. He believed it was aS good choice and that Mr. Boyd yould be a success. Pacific Route. Mr. Buchanan also wanted to know If any steps had been taken in regard to the shipment of grain via the Pacific route. Sir George Foster said that he hoped to arrange 4T?th the British government to have one of the boats now being built on the Pacific coast carry to England a load of grain in bulk via the Panama Canal^ This would settle the much disputed question as to whether grain would keep shipped in bulk via that route. Conditions were so abnormal at the present time that it was difficult to settle whether this route would he as economical as to ship by rail to the Expenses National Service. Sir Robert Borden, in reply to Hon. George P. Graham, said that the rou-tino work of the office of the fuel controller was being done by the staff of the national service board, under an arrangement made with that body. In this way any additional expense had been avoided. The national service board staff was also working in co-operation with the food controller. The premier stated that the amount of money expended by the national service board to date was $134,0S1. Directors salaries amounted to $19,131, fend their expenses $12,234. get rain as there is no moisture in the ground. Olds.-No rains during past week but crops not suffering yet.

CONT NlWilCflATOR ^ MontftrtWMW 23- The,, da-zette's Utttwa^ 'correspondent says: "L. McMeans, K.C., of Winn* peg, who will bo selected to All tho one remaining vacancy in the Manitoba representation in the senate, has arrived in Ottawa. Mr, McMenns Is a prominent barrister of Winnipeg. He was formerly 'member for South Winnipeg in the Manitoba legislature. Mr. McMeans has lost one son, a member of the Sth battalion, and has himself raiRcd n battalion for overseas service."       �-Kurope. He wanted to know how it would affect the standard time of the J railways. Sir George Foster replied that the United States was almost as large as Canada and quoted Sir George Bury, vice-president of the C. P. R. as being In favor of daylight saving if it were made a Dominion-wide measure. Later in the afternoon strong opposition to the daylight savings bill developed on both sides of the house and Sir George Foster moved that tho committee of the house report progress. It is doubtful in view of the opposition in the house if its consideration will be renewed. A FINE LECTURE Rev. A. G.

A very unprecedented thing occurred here a short time ago. A bull moose was seen to come up over the hills from the Cardston direction. He made straight for Horace Williams' grove of trees, leaping fences and swimming lakes as if nothing should Interfere with his progress. The whole family of Mr. Williams were out looking at him coming. Just as he got to the edge of the trees an old turkey hen started to clucking and flying her feathers which frightened him ofr at right angles to.his original direction. One of the boys leaped a saddle horse in hot pursuit, but the moose was over the next hill and out of sight before you could Bay "Jack Robinson." By the time the boy reached the top of the hill he saw the moose just going over the crest of the next hill a mile away. He has not been heard from since and many a conjecture has been made as to where he came from and where he intended to go. cently, When these elevators are built Carmangay will have a splendid string of elevators facing the tracks. About fifty people from this district went on the Lethbridge excursion last Thursday to the experimental farm. All report having a good time. Some of the more daring ventured on the Crows Nest excursion from Lethbridge last Wednesday. They motored to Monarch where they took the .train. The natural beauty of the Canadian Rockies was immensely enjoyed However many adverse criticisms were passed on the effect that B.C has on some people. Miss C. Eyres of Calgary teaching staff, formerly of Carmangay, is a visitor at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Philip Coulter. Miss J. Telfer, of the Edmonton teaching staff, is visiting the Rev. and Mrs. D. H. Telfer at the parsonage. Miss Agnes Wilson, of Perth, Ontario, is a guest at the home of her brother, Dr. A. F. Wilson.

There, has been no rain and the crops are showing the effoct.m of the'continued drouth. Grain is heading out very short with small bends. Timothy Is almost rlpo and Is short nnd seed will not amount to much except In a few rare instances where conditions have been favorable despite the drouth. Bunch grass haying is in full swing and is remarkably heavy and of good quality. In the Cowley ' district tho Donkhobors are plowing with three steam outfits and have turned over an immense tract ready for fall wheat. Rain will do a world of good if it comes within tho next ton days, otherwise it will be too late to be of much good to the majority of crops in this district. es It is getting yollow at tho roots, but on (lie whole is holding out very well. Most of the fanners aro busy haying. Tho hay is n good crop. FOREMOST Foromost, July 23.-Tho wonder to everybody is that the crop is holding as well r.s it is. No rain has fallen and hot. winds aro prevalent. Unless rain does visit us inside of four to live days, things, I fear, will look bad. The headed out grain needs, it more than tho later sowings. MACLEOD Macleod, July 23.-Tho warm, dry weather of tho past week has materially affected tho crop prospects for the coming season.
